Earlier this week the Tulalip Tribes hosted Making Sense of Sea Level Rise, a Tribal Climate Change Forum at the Seattle Mountaineers club. The Forum brought together representatives from Washington’s coastal tribes, state agencies, non-profits and academia in a somewhat unusual format to address local sea level rise issues. The Forum was broken into morning plenary presentations and afternoon “open space market places.” While the plenaries (including presentations from CHRN members Dr. Lara Whitey Binder, Ian Miller, and Eric Grossman) were extremely informative, it was the afternoon open space sessions that really caught my attention.
Over the last few months, the CHRN has had a number of new additions, pushing our number of active members over 60! As we begin to plan for our annual meeting (preliminary information and save-the-date coming soon), we wanted to introduce our newest members, Mike Chang (The Nature Conservancy/Makah Tribe), Ken Connell (Golder Associates Inc.), Jessica Côté (Confluence Environmental Company), Erica Harris (AECOM), Ann Schnitz (Baker Consulting Group), and Melissa Watkinson (The Nature Conservancy). See below for brief bios of each of our new members, and as always, please feel free to reach out to one another either through the CHRN listserv or directly via email.
